Hamid,
 You could create a new table and select the values from the old table and then rename the new table after saving the old one. Be sure to check all packages, permissions, etc.
Why the renaming of a column? Developers should not code positional dependency on columns in their code. They should list the column name and then position doesn't matter.

List,
Is there any way to rename a column without changing the position of column?
